Supremacy tells the story of a white supremacist and his ruthless girlfriend that kills a cop and while on the run break into a house and takes a Black family hostage. Over a long night of terror, a subtle psychological struggle ensues between the family patriarch (Glover), an ornery ex-con himself, and the convict as the patriarch must rely on his wit and understanding of the racist mind to find a plan to free his family, but not before he confronts his own brand of bigotry and anger. The film features an all-star cast including Derek Luke, Evan Ross, Lela Rochon, Joe Anderson, Dawn Olivieri, Mahershala Ali and Anson Mount.
